Podcast 295: Joel Korte of Chase Bliss Audio

Chase Bliss Audio makes some of the most interesting pedals created today. On this week’s Fretboard Journal Podcast, we talk to founder Joel Korte about his company’s rapid rise in popularity, his workflow, some of their latest creations and their ongoing collaborations with both pedal makers and musicians.

We also talk about the human element found in Chase Bliss’ output, some of the noteworthy videos they’ve produced (including the videos on their wooden boxes and the Kickstarter video where Joel’s kid steals the show), Korte’s unique career path and plan for the future, mushrooms, and more.
